Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
Your love is my martyrdom. The more I feel it burn within me, the more I desire You. Jesus, grant that I may die of love for You.
St. Therese of Lisieux
For the soul who loves God without reserve, the commitment to God is like a martyrdom, for she would even “die of love” for Jesus. Pray today that you will burn with such longing for intimacy with Jesus.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
